Inland Rail Advice Lodged – Acacia Ridge to Kagaru


The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) has announced that an initial Advice Statement for a portion of the multi-billion dollar Inland Rail Project has been lodged with the Office of the Coordinator-General.  The proposed rail line works between Kagaru to Acacia Ridge and also to Bromelton is requested to be consider and to verify if it would be a ‘coordinated project’.

If the Coordinator-General determines the section of rail line works is coordinated project, an investigation period of 12-18 months will commence to research the planning and environmental aspects of the project . The investigation will produce an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) which will be then lodged and assessed by the Coordinator-General.

Requested Section for Consideration

Entire Inland Rail Project

Environmental Impact Statement
– Geotechnical
– Flooding and hydrology
– Ecological
– Noise, air quality and vibration
– Social and heritage studies.

The project is spread across three (3) Local Government Areas: Scenic Rim, Logan City and Brisbane City. The Kagaru to Acacia Ridge and Bromelton section of the project includes a major intermodal station at Acacia Ridge and dual gauge operations along the 49km of existing interstate rail line. ARTC outline that investigations may commence to prepare for the project assessment.

– Ecological surveys
Identify habitats and/or species that exist within the area of investigation

– Utility identification surveys
Identify infrastructure such as gas and water pipelines

– Heritage surveys
Investigations for any evidence of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artefacts/heritage

– Noise, air quality and vibration surveys
Measure background noise, air quality and vibration levels at key sites

– Land surveys
Identify any easements and to install survey pegs if required

– Geotechnical surveys
Obtain information about the physical properties of the soil and rock

– Hydrology studies
Obtain information about flooding, and surface water movements.

Project Timeline

Inland Rail will involve community consultation throughout the project and a community consultative committee has been form to provide insights into community issues, concerns and opportunities.

Interactive map
ARTC have developed an interactive map to gather issues from the community. The map outlines the rail alignment, proposed track lowering, crossing loops (and extensions). The community are encouraged to place a pin on the map and add a comment.
